In Latin America, CPR is working on initiatives with Partners for Democratic Change, to assist business in locating skilled mediators in Brazil. CPR members are increasingly investing in Brazil and are concerned about the lack of reliable dispute resolution mechanisms in the region. CPR has met with businesses and institutions in Rio and Sao Paulo who want to learn more about how mediation works and how it can be used successfully by Brazilian businesses and investors. CPR has also visited local bar associations, the Federation for Industry, local dispute resolution organizations, and with CPR corporate and law firm members. In addition to promoting mediation, CPR will work with these constituents, to develop a roster of neutrals suitable for assisting parties with cross border disputes.
